  1. My first Princess Cruise was on the Golden Princess to Alaska in June, 2012. We had a great time. Enjoyed the Golden very much.
  2. Very interesting! Thank you for posting. Our Golden Princess Alaska voyage in September 2013 marked our return to cruising after a five year hiatus and was my sister and brother-in-law's first cruise. Our favorite daytime hang-out area was Skywalkers. It was even quiet on the day we saw the glacier. We had lots of good times on this trip. I even enjoyed taking pictures to show the strange mirror reflections in our inside stateroom. I always intended to sail Golden Princess again, but we never did.
  3. I'm not sure what ship you are talking about but we peeked in on one on the Grand Princess and didn't like the layout at all. Yes, it does really sleep six ... it appeared that it was two rooms, one mini suite and one smaller room, just opened up to make one large room. Suites are definitely worth it depending on your budget. You all get full suite benefits. You usually will have to call in for the pricing on these staterooms. Here is a link to one of the family suites on the Golden Princess: https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/stateroom-details.php?ship=Golden-Princess&cabin=D105 And ... a link for a UTube video of one on the Grand Princess: https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/youtube.php?id=10569 Feel free to ask any questions about the suite benefits if you wish.
  4. We sailed on the Golden twice and were suppose to be on the April 8th 29 day cruise from Sydney to L.A. that was cancelled. So sad, hate to see the ship leave. One of the last remaining ships with a Vista lounge at the back instead of Club Confusion.
  5. We will be on the Golden Princess in Alaska in June and it will not have been upgraded to MedallionNet before then. Has anyone had experience with the onboard internet on the Golden? I had heard it was not the best quality, and I am hesitant to purchase a package.
  6. Golden Princess Transformation Just seen a link to this article detailing changes afoot for the Golden Princess once it moves to P&O Australia. May be there’s still a chance Princess will add a waterslide or two to a future ship 👿
  7. Princess has re-used past abbreviations. If you look on the Princess site and click on a ship you will find the proper abbreviation as part of the URL. For reference: Princess Ship Abbreviations CB - Caribbean Princess CO - Coral Princess KP - Crown Princess DP - Dawn Princess DI - Diamond Princess XP - Discovery Princess EP - Emerald Princess EX - Enchanted Princess NP - Golden Princess AP - Grand Princess IP - Island Princess GP - Regal Princess RP - Royal Princess RU - Ruby Princess SA - Sapphire Princess CP - Sea Princess TP - Star Princess SP - Sun Princess MJ – Majestic Princess YP – Sky Princess PA - Pacific Princess
  8. Thank you all for your responses! I appreciate them. Greg, thank you for the info on the Sun/Sea ships. I found some photos of the Sun, and, yes, the mini suite looks great; the balcony not so much. Polmcs, I agree with you. We had a great price/perks on the Golden. I'm not sure the Sun is going to be a comparable experience. It looks a bit dated. Adstz, thank you for the suggestion of checking the Princess site regularly. Who knows? Maybe something will pop up. Kamloops50, good points about prices going up and smaller ships having higher fares. AtlanticCruiser72, my TA sugested booking a balcony and getting on a wait list for a mini. I didn't know there was a wait list available for sold out cabins. We may try that. This cruise was going to be our 50th anniversary celebratiion. It was leaving on June 27, our anniversary, and we had cabin #627. Also, Alaska was the first cruise we ever took. We usually take cruises that are port intensive because I am a sight-seer at heart. This one had/has 6 sea days, so we thought it would be a more relaxing vacation than our norm. The extra sea days made the mini suite more desirable for us. More room, a comfy sofa, a larger bathroom (and shower especially!) and a large deck to relax on. Bit by bit, this anniversary cruise is falling apart. We'll see what happens. We're looking at other options, but so far we haven't come up with "the one." Again, thank you all for taking the time to give me information and suggestions!
  9. This is an old and out of date list but will give you a fair idea of what can be had with the package. Basically any drink other than "high end" liquor is included. Wine can be more problematic but there is always wine available in MDR that is within the limit. Vines has higher end wine that isn't included but also has wine that fits within the boundaries of the beverage package. I believe all beer will be included - at least I can't think of any that isn't.

  10. Considering a 29 day Pacific crossing offered on the Ruby and the Golden in April 2020. I’m not familia with either ship so would like your thoughts on these two ships. The Golden’s price is lower🤔. Thanks
  11. The Grand Princess was a big story here in Northern California. I don’t remember Governor Newsom opposing the docking, The President, however, is on video opposing it. Roughly half the passengers were Californians. He seemed to be truly focused in the wellbeing of all those in the ship, as well as, local residents. I think his big concern was it would be hard to dock the Grand in a controlled situating right in the middle of San Francisco. I don’t think there was much opposition from Californians either, especially considering how many were onboard. In fact, motorists crossing the Golden Gate Bridge at the time she passed under it, got out of their cars and cheered the passengers on their balconies. It was evident that he was deeply involved in the planning along with Oakland Mayor Schaff. I listed to the Governor’s press conference held the day before the docking(while on hold with Princess to unfortunately cancel cruise). He described the process in great detail. He was very instrumental in choosing the site in Oakland, and in fact would take “any heat for that” in his words. But I don’t remember him ever saying the Grand could not dock.
  12. Has the Golden Princess got the new beds and mattresses?Anyone recently cruised on her? I tried to look this up but this site not very user friendly now to do a search. Even Princess website not easy to navigate.
  13. Just wondering if the Terrace Pool on Golden Princess is open to all and if it has stairs to enter pool- not ladders. If it doesn't have ladders, is there any pool available that does have stair entry to water? Thanks.
  14. Thinking about cruising on Golden Princess in May. Have sailed on Princess 2x before. Regal Princess was great. Caribbean Princess was not so much. Usually sail Celebrity. Itinerary on Golden looks good. Would like some comments about the ship. Thanks!
  15. I think they should be building this size ship they are lovely to cruise on not too big and not too small. We loved our time on the Golden Princess and have also sailed on Sapphire and Diamond, beautiful ships.
  16. We've just boarded Golden Princess in San Francisco and attended the first special event for Elite, Suite, and Platinum guests. We're Platinum. As you know, Princess usually has either a nice lounge for a free drink or three in the evening, or equivalent coupons to use around the ship. Now the party is in the Vista Lounge, and the only free thing is special appetizers. The "special" drinks offered -- about eight cocktails, which aren't of interest to us -- were a "special" price of $6.50 and everything else was regular price. Last trip on Princess for us. Unless of course Celebrity, RCI, and HAL do the same. Another silly thing to have to check before booking.
  17. Rewarded with a sunrise . We had a mostly sunny day with a high of 65 and a low in the upper 50's . Sailing up the Tagus River into Lisbon we see the Belem Tower . It was built in the 1500's . And then , the Monument to the Discoveries We then sailed under Lisbon's version of the Golden Gate Bridge . It was noisy as heard on this video clip: We also saw the large statue Christ the King towering above us . We were not alone The April the 25th Bridge
  18. Have never sailed Golden; but sure appreciate those who have posted pics of their ship and their cruise. Thanks OP for starting this thread. I'm enjoying it. Happy Tuesday.
  19. Our second cruise ever and first on Princess was on the lovely Golden Princess. We sailed for 7 days in the Eastern Caribbean Nov 2003. This ship and its crew made us fall in love with Princess and we have since sailed on her numerous times. She will be missed.
  20. Question for those who have recently sailed on the Golden. I was curious as to what type of televisions are currently on the ship? We are sailing a 10 Day Sea of Cortez cruise in May 2020 and I was specifically wondering if they were still the old View Sonic monitors or have they been upgraded? When we were on the Star last year that had newer flat screens that let us hook up a Blu Ray player. On the Ruby earlier this year, they had newer flat screens where the HDMI inputs were disabled. They were not On Demand types as on the Royal, etc. I know the cruise is a ways off and things can change, but I was just curious. Thanks in advance for any replies.....😊😊😊 Bob
  21. Our second Princess cruise was on the Golden P (early 2002 in Caribbean), the first on that design. Our first had been on the Dawn in 2000. Plus 13 other Princess cruises after 2002. We started our cruising on a competing line in 1994. While we did many cruises on that line, Princess became our "go-to" choice.
  22. Last summer we were on the Golden and Jover was our Head Waiter. We got such good service from him we would go back on the Golden if he is on the Ship again this summer. Anyone on the Golden that could ask next time you go to one of the main dining rooms. Thankyou!
  23. Can anybody recently (or currently) on board Golden Princess help out with a beer list? Particularly Pale Ales and IPA's. There was word of a possible upcoming revamp of the beers as well as the wines available. Reason being, we're about to do the Trans Pacific crossing from San Francisco to Sydney and I'm readying myself to become a wine drinker for the month if need be. The list is apparently quite different to what we are accustomed to when sailing from ports outside Aus/NZ.
  24. Anyone who has recently sailed the Golden notice if there are mahjongg sets on board? They are usually found in the library with the other games.
  25. I just went into my personalizer to see if ours for Aug. 8th on the Golden has not been removed yet. What did change was the final payment date from May to June. I really which they would update all those that have been cancelled so we don't assume its still on. Like you, I only had a FCD deposit applied to the booking. I am thinking that they are working on the cruises that were earlier before they get to ours.
